Watch: Capitals prospect eats cobra’s beating heart and drinks its blood

Tuesday July 21st, 2015

Washington Capitals prospect Stanislav Galiev is on vacation in Vietnam and provided an update with an Instagram post he tagged “#exoticfood.” Exotic is a bit of an understatement. 

Galiev posted a video of himself swallowing the still-beating heart of a cobra and then chasing it with a shot of the snake’s blood. His wife ate the animal’s gallbladder.

The post also includes a video of the snake’s blood being drained into a shot glass. It’s obviously pretty gross, but you can watch it below. 

This came after an appetizer of roasted scorpions, which he said tasted like iodine.
